Shallow NV-centers in diamond

Active centers in diamond are important for an increasing number of applications, particularly in quantum information and sensing. These centers, in particular the nitrogen-vacancy (NV) center, have been studied in detail in bulk diamond. In many cases, however, it is essential to produce and use such centers in close proximity to the surface and to optimise their properties for specific applications. In a joint project with groups from Bochum and Duisburg, we are studying such defects, using optical spectroscopy and optically detected magnetic resonance.

The ideal candidate for this position has a solid background in optical spectroscopy and / or magnetic resonance and interest in the optimisation of these materials in an interdisciplinary project. Additional information on this subject is available at
